Reclaimed by Sarah Guillory

Jenna Oliver doesn't have time to get involved with one boy, let alone two. All Jenna wants is to escape her evaporating small town and her alcoholic mother. She's determined she'll go to college and find a life that is wholly hers-one that isn't tainted by her family's past. But when the McAlister twins move to town and Jenna gets involved with both of them, she learns the life she planned may not be the one she gets. Ian McAlister doesn't want to start over; he wants to remember. Ian can't recall a single thing from the last three months-and he seems to be losing more memories every day. His family knows the truth, but no one will tell him what really happened before he lost his memory. When he meets Jenna, Ian believes that he can be normal again because she makes not remembering something he can handle. The secret Ian can't remember is the one Luke McAlister can't forget. Luke has always lived in the shadow of his twin brother until Jenna stumbles into his life. She sees past who he's supposed to be, and her kiss brings back the spark that life stole. Even though Luke feels like his brother deserves her more, Luke can't resist Jenna-which is the trigger that makes Ian's memory return. Jenna, Ian, and Luke are about to learn there are only so many secrets you can keep before the truth comes to reclaim you.

At a Glance:
I met Sarah Guillory at the Nova Teen Book Festival. Some of the authors and staff all met at a restaurant after. She saw my Doctor Who bag I was carrying and I was instantly engaged in a conversation with her about Doctor Who. She's so sweet and when I heard about her book I ended up reading and loving it!

This book is up with my top ten favorite romances. And thats a big deal. This romance was sitting at the edge of your seat, not doing your chores because you were so involved with this book. I love the romance between Jenna, Ian and Luke. One of the best love triangles I've ever read! And when I finished the book, I was all "Read the book!" at my mother, cause I knew she'd love it!

Jenna was a great heroine. Wasn't annoying, she was sweet, likable and very lucky that she gets all the attention from the twins.

Ian and Luke McAlister are twins. Cute, funny, and charming twins. I don't even know if I have a favorite. The whole book they're vying for Jenna's attention and it's so romantic.

Something I loved:
The romance, the humor, everything.

Something(s) I hated:
I can't really think of anything, except that it made me cry so hard!!

Will I buy/keep it?

  1. I totally photo bombed on accident.

  2. Thank you for the review! It's nice to know another person's thought on the book. I'm really looking forward to reading Trial by Fire! :)

  3. Love the sound of this book. The fact that fire isn't deadly but powerful is very intriguing. Definitely going to the top of my tbr.

  4. I loved the Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys series when I was in elementary school! I read the original and lots of other spin-off series from them. I really loved the SuperMysteries hat had them working together. I now read all different types of YA--fantasy, dystopic, contemporary, historical...whatever I'm in the mood for!

  5. My favorite childhood book was Shug! I love that book and it will always sticks with me.
